Aubameyang odds-on to bag at least seven goals

ARSENAL manager Arsene Wenger got his man yesterday as Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang joined the north London outfit for £56m just hours before the closure of the January transfer window.

It was a busy final day with French international Olivier Giroud, who has been frustrated by a lack of starts at Arsenal, moving across London to join Chelsea, while Antonio Conte allowed Belgian forward Michy Batshuayi to head to Dortmund to complete the transfer triangle.

Aubameyang scored 14 goals after January in the Bundesliga last year and is 4-6 with Coral to score more than seven in the remainder of this campaign.

It is the second time the Gunners have broken their transfer record on a striker in the last six months after they captured Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon in the summer.

Lacazette is 6-5 with BoyleSports to score more goals than his new teammate, who is 8-13 to win the goals match bet.

Betfred were impressed by Wenger’s deadline-day deals and cut the Gunners to 10-1 from 14-1 for a top-four finish, despite their 3-1 defeat at struggling Swansea on Tuesday.

Giroud should be primed for action for the Blues as regular striker Alvaro Morata is injured, but he is 9-4 with the firm to win goal match bets with the Spaniard and Aubameyang.

Elsewhere, Arsenal’s north London rivals Tottenham boosted their squad with the signing of Paris St-Germain’s wideman Lucas Moura.

Leganes v Real Madrid

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • La Liga games at Leganes average just 1.9 goals per game this season
Expert verdict
Despite their domestic struggles, Real Madrid have only lost one match away from home in La Liga this season and they should have too much for city rivals Leganes. The hosts knocked Los Blancos out of the Copa del Rey recently, which should spur Zinedine's Zidane's team into wanting revenge, but they might not destroy a team who have only conceded nine goals at Butarque.
